Moore to boost Scotland's textile training programme

Mr. Michael Moore
Michael Moore, the Secretary of State for Scotland, will endorse Skillset Apprenticeship programme for the town's textile sector during a visit to Hawick on April 20, 2012.

Mr. Moore, who is also the local MP, will be touring around Hawick Cashmere, Peter Scott and the Textile Towerhouse and is expected to meet representatives of the knitwear industry as well as people enrolled in the apprenticeship training programme.

The textiles apprenticeship scheme was launched in October last year, and was followed up by a seminar on employment opportunities in the textile sector earlier this year.

Mr. Moore's visit is likely to send a strong message to young people in Hawick that the Government is confident about viability of textile industry in future and there is a need for a highly skilled workforce to support the growth of the town's textile sector.

The objective of the skillset training scheme for the textile sector is to recruit and train new talent that would be absorbed in the local textile industry.

The programme was set up with assistance from Skillset, Mike Wilson from the Scottish Borders Exporters' Association and Robin Deas from the House of Cheviot.

Several knitwear makers in Hawick also extended their support to the scheme, including Hawick Cashmere, Johnstons of Elgin, William Lockie and Co., Hawick Knitwear, Scott and Charters, Peter Scott, Barrie and some Borders firms.
